Congressman Jim Jordan puts the Democrats big-picture plan for impeachment

House Oversight Committee Ranking member Jim Jordan has been assigned to serve by the Republican leadership on the house Intelligence Committee, he may participate in the hearing in the open trump card-impeachment hearings begin next week.

Jordan, R-Ohio, will replace Rep. Rick Crawford, R-Ark., who resigned temporarily from his post on the panel on Friday.


“Jim Jordan was at the front in the fight for justice and truth. His addition will ensure more accountability and transparency in this process,” house GOP leader Kevin McCarthy said in a statement on Friday.

Under the present conditions, Jordan, the top Republican on the Oversight Committee, has been deposits in the room for most of the closed door. Because he is not a member of the Intelligence Committee, even though the Ohio Republican may not ask questions.

“Speaker Pelosi’s house, the issues, said the victim of a partisan witch hunt like,” McCarthy. “As a rule, venerable Intelligence Committee has, in the meantime, the partisan Impeachment Committee.”

McCarthy said Crawford is back in the Committee after the investigation is completed.

“Along with millions of Americans across the country who are frustrated with this impeachment-obsessed majority, Rick has offered to step aside for this Theater,” McCarthy said. “When it’s done, Rick, the Committee and the resumption of its work will be back to our country safe.”

A senior House democratic aid tells Fox News that Democrats are allowed to the staff, because “it is customary that whoever is proposing the minority, is accepted.”

Jordan, who was a staunch defender of the President, in his current role would not have been on the Podium during the public hearings next week on counterpunch. Republican leadership, the whole week had to move consideration of the Jordan, and is considering, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N. C., and Lee Zeldin, R-NY, as well. But the position of Jordan on the record, the Republican leadership is required, one of the current Republicans on the panel to remove. Remove three, including meadows and Zeldin, would be quite a feat.

“Politically, there is no way for us to pull this off,” a Republican source told Fox News.

The assignment comes just a few days before the first public hearings as part of the prosecution’s request.

On Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., announced that the first public hearings will be the controversy as part of the investigation next Wednesday and Friday, with current and former officials with knowledge of the Ukraine.


“Next week, the House Intelligence Committee, will hold the first public hearings as part of the prosecution’s request,” Schiff tweeted.

“On Wednesday, 13. November, 2019, we will hear from William Taylor, and George Kent,” he continued. “On Friday, 15. November, 2019, we learn of Marie Yovanovitch.”

To get “more,” he added.

The first public hearing, the function Taylor, the Deputy U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine, which is already testified behind closed doors before the congressional investigators that the President pushed the Ukraine to investigate election interference, former Vice-President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, and their Ukrainian business, and that he was told were to meet the U.S. military aid and the White house, as a means of pressure used by a public service announcement from Kiev that the probes were in progress is.


Kent, the deputy assistant Secretary of State, is also shown with Taylor. Kent testified behind closed doors last month, and said the committees, he had Biden’s concerns about Hunter’s role on the Board of a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings, in the year 2015, but was dismissed, the former vice president of personnel, said the office was busy, Beau Biden, the cancer-fight.

In the meantime, next Friday, Yovanovitch, the former U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine, will appear in a public setting. You testified last month behind closed doors as well, says the lawmakers that Ukraine, told to her by Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani campaign, oust her from her post in the administration. Yovanovitch was pushed out of her job in may, Trump orders.

Yovanovitch said she learned this from Ukrainian officials last November or December that Giuliani was in contact with Ukraine, the former top Prosecutor, Yuri Lutsenko, “and you had plans, and that they were, you know, do things, including me.”

“Basically, it was the people in the Ukrainian government, which said that Mr Lutsenko, the former attorney General, was in communication with mayor Giuliani,” said she.

In your testimony, Yovanovitch also, investigators said that she was disloyal to the President.

“I heard the allegation in the media that I allegedly said, to ignore our Embassy team, the accused are the President’s orders, because he was going to,” she said. “That the claim is false. I never said such a thing to my message, colleagues, or anyone eIse.”

“We are moving with the open phase,” the ship told reporters on the hill on Wednesday, adding that the Committee is still “remaining deposits of” you “perform, will over the next couple of days.”

To investigate the impeachment investigation was opened after a whistleblower complaint alleges that Trump in July with a call, pushed the Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky,, Joe Biden and his son Hunter kept as a military aid to the country.

A transcript released by the White house shows make trump that request, but he and his allies denied that military aid was clearly in connection with the request or that a quid pro quo. Some of the witnesses before house committees as part of the impeachment procedure against the claim.

The White house, though, has maintained the President is nothing wrong.

The house of representatives last week passed a measure largely along party lines, the formalization of the process and a set of “rules of the game” for the prosecution’s request, including for public testimony.

While the Republicans against the resolution, and complained the rules were unfair, they still gave the minority Republicans the ability to subpoena witnesses, with the consent of the Democratic Committee Chairman. If the chair does not agree, the minority appealed to the Committee as a whole can.

“We are glad to see that the Chairman of the ship has decided to move his impeachment, said the method of his top-secret bunker, and in the eyes of the public,” a GOP aide to Fox News on Wednesday. “We are confident that the American people will see that there is no quid pro quo, and there is no pressure on the Ukrainian government-for everything.”

The GOP aide added: “in contrast, Chairman of ship, we never have something to hide and look forward to the opportunity to the facts of the case.”

Meanwhile, U.S. diplomat David Hale appeared before the committees, the charge request, performs on Wednesday behind closed doors. Hale is expected to tell lawmakers that the political considerations behind the State Department’s decision to refuse U.S. military aid to Ukraine.
